Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Tyre repair gunge
« Last post by culzean on November 20, 2018, 07:30:42 PM »
Just reviving older thread rather than starting a new one, I carry one of these on my motorbike, and if I am going on holiday in the car I move it from under the motorbike seat and into car glove box.  It uses a mushroom  shaped plug that is applied from outside the tyre, only thing you need is a pair of pliers to remove the nail or screw.  You can get the kit with or without the CO2 cylinders, ( may not need them for a car if you have a pump) but for as motorbike with no pump they are required.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Spare wheel compatability
« Last post by culzean on November 20, 2018, 06:31:09 PM »
My wife is just scrapping her 2004 Jazz SE Sports, and it must be one of the last ones which came with a half size spare wheel as standard.
I've got a 2012 Jazz I-VTEC ES CVT (it says here) - does anyone know if the spare will fit mine? Mine came with a bottle of stuff for resealing the tyre which is now two years out of date, an I'd rather have a wheel, anyway...

The bolt pattern will be the same but measure the diameter to see if it is anywhere near the same as the 175/65R15 or 185/55R16 wheel you have on the 2012. Maybe just offer it up to the car and see if it is anywhere near same.  The tyre is probably past its use by date though.

My husband is the Business Consultant so I just allow him to do the wheeling and dealing. He buys cars after the start of the year but before the change of registration numbers.
For my test drive I drove my daily commute. It was a 50+ mile test drive and on the roads and similar traffic to what it will be used for. Other than using the car for work it is only used to and from the local supermarket. If we go anywhere we always use Billís car and share the driving.

Loose connection, bad earth are the obvious ones.
Taking the connectors from the bulbs and replacing has worked for me in the past.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Headlight fault
« Last post by RichardA on November 20, 2018, 01:54:22 PM »
Yesterday evening I found I had no headlights other than the nearside parking (side) light. Front fog lights were working, didn't check the high beam.

Tapped each light one by one and they lit up. Everything fine so far today.

Anyone know what to check for? Thanks.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Cannot figure out why my Jazz MPG is so bad

As pointed out by olduser1, your problem sounds like a combination of short journeys and colder temperatures.
I don't know if it makes a real difference but when was the CVT oil last changed ?
The fuel economy of an auto is also likely to be worse than a manual, particularly when driven around town imho.

fwiw, I still run a 57 CVT which is only used for short trips less than 3-4 miles each way around town.  The dash claims 30-33mpg (I reset the trip meter at each fill up), but I know the actual mpg is about 10% lower when filling up at the petrol station in the past.

I have been running Michelin CCs since March. Quiet, comfortable . lots of grip in mud. No snow yet.

I would always avoid the new car deals, take a look at Motorpoint and similar outlets Drive the deal etc.
On the test drive you need to vary the roads min time 30-40 mins. Then bargain hard there are 000's of Jazz around Honda dealers are desperate for sales this month - best time to get a deal done November

Its the cold weather + short journey, I would just enquire of the prev owner about fuel they put in each week month.
Try a full tank of Shell V power or BP super stuff.
